Dry Ingredients

Wet Ingredients




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Butter an 8-inch springform pan.
  • Set aside the dry ingredients... flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cardamom.

Prepare the Batter

  • Using an electric hand blender, mix the softened butter until creamy.
  • Add the sugar to the creamed butter, blend for a couple of minutes until the butter and sugar form a creamy mixture.
  • Like so.
  • Add the vanilla extract and mawa/khoya. Blend for about a minute until all the ingredients are well combined.
  • Now add all the dry ingredients. Blend for about 30 seconds until the flour has incorporated into the butter-sugar mixture. The batter should be crumbly.
  • Add the milk and yogurt. Using a spatula, fold the milk and yogurt into the flour mixture. DO NOT MIX, FOLD THE MIXTURE.
  • Pour the batter into the springform pan. Top with chopped nuts.
  • Into the oven for 45-55 minutes. I baked my Mawa Cake for exactly 52 minutes.

Enjoy with a cup of tea!
